Kara Luton

Kara Luton

Kara went from tutus to tech. After pursuing a career as a professional ballerina, Kara moved back to her hometown of Nashville, TN to work as a music publicist. A life of pitching journalists and walking red carpets left her feeling unfulfilled and she made the switch to being a software engineer. Now, Kara has a passion for introducing others to this industry and showing them they can succeed.

Outside of work, Kara organizes the Nashville Women Programmers meetup group. She also enjoys playing with her dogs - Maggie and Franklin, going to concerts and seeing a ballet whenever she can.
